Rockstar Families - From zero to hero, headache included free of charge

Friday I stayed at the office till after 7. There was another push to be made, another power ten to take. I've been working on this training concept for the last 6 months, Rockstar Families. Take a moment with me to remember the days when you set your own goals and aspirations. This was and still is a goal, a journey I intend to complete. I started this journey about 3 years ago, giving free online demos on Revit. I'm not sure just how many presentations I’ve given. What I do know is over the last 6 months I’ve presented well over a hundred hours of web based training.

BMSS was the test drive for all my online training series; I knew that it was critical to the industry. This year was the right time for most BIM managers, who cared if it was the right time for me. While building BMSS this spring I had 3 jobs, taught 2 college classes, drove over 500 miles a week, continued playing sports and somehow got some sleep. That was crazy; add trying to come up with topics, build the content, and then present it. I mangaged to survive and so did the BIM managers who attended the training.

Rockstar Families, another brain child of mine. I was not alone; I had some great input from people like Blaine, Micah, Shobhit and other people in the industry. Wait, here is where I have to plug Pyatok Architects, Inc. This company brought me in for a day of Families training, a special thanks needs to go out to them. That class made a huge impact on how I’ll present Revit Families from now on. Everyone who attends any of the families training should take a second to thank all the wonderful people at that company! Not only are they implementing Revit correctly, they are making impact in their community (look at their projects). ~ Thank you Caroline ~

Back to Rockstar Families. I've lost count of the hours I've spent sweating over what to cover, how to cover it and in what order. Friday, the full outline was done. Today all the Key Points for basic Families is done. It's going to happen! Really it's going to happen!

Keep an eye out for the email invitations.

You ever have a huge burden lifted, only to realize it's to be replaced with an even more important/heavier task?

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
